  6. why do you accept bitcoin and not paypal. I have money in my paypal account to pay the bill but cant because you don’t accept it. Its been a long week missing baseball and football.

  7. cancelled service,dish did their best to keep me on. I told them I was disgusted with their business practices.Dish network manager cut my service off in the middle of the month when I said I absolutely wanted out of the contract. Dish now owed me,1 1/2 month service payment which would count towards early termination, plus I was told I had a credit of $29 due me.All said & done, they kept billing me for termination fee,plus other fees, still saying termination was owed. They are CROOKS!!!They need to be investigated, but who has the balls to do that, they are all in bed together.I will pay,but they must show a final, hard copy bill, which they have not done yet, only an internet bill.

  8. I don’t need help with my bill, I only need to delay it for 5 days if possible. I don’t mind paying a small fee to make this happen.

  9. I don’t think its fair for dish to turn my service off when I have never been late but this time I called and told them that payment was in the mail but they said it was going to be turned off anyway

  10. I’m trying to pay my brother’s DISH Network bill but I don’t have his social security number or his security code and there is no way for me to get it is there an answer to that so I can pay online
